The rare dustjacket a little dusty but unclipped and in very good condition. The Volume itself in Near Fine condition with only minor signs of external wear. Minor signs of spotting and foxing only. SIGNED by Alfred O'Rahilly on the endpaper ! Signed editions of this book are very scarce ! Includes for example the following chapters: The Evolution of Money / The Evolution of Banking / Bank-Money / The British Banking System / The Central Bank / Savings / International Trade. Alfred O'Rahilly (1 October 1884 ? 1 August 1969) was a noted academic, president of University College Cork and a Teachta Dála (TD) for Cork City. Born in Listowel, County Kerry and educated at St. Michael's College, Listowel, and at Blackrock College in Dublin, O'Rahilly went on to third level education at University College Cork, where he completed an MA and PhD. After a course in scholastic philosophy at Stonyhurst, during which he secured his D.Phil, he was appointed assistant lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Physics in 1914, and made full Professor of Mathematical Physics in 1917. He became Registrar of the college in 1920, and held the post until 1943 when he became President of the University. He spent a year, in 1927, at Harvard studying social and political theory. Cork University conferred on him the degree D.Litt in 1939 and in the same year his massive work on Electromagnetics obtained for him the degree D.Sc. O'Rahilly founded the Cork University Press in 1931. After the 1916 Easter Rising, O'Rahilly publicly supported Sinn Féin and was elected to Cork City Council as a Sinn Féin and Transport Workers candidate. Arrested early in 1921 for political writings, O'Rahilly was interned in Spike Island prison. Released in October 1921 he was constitutional adviser to the Irish Treaty Delegation. O'Rahilly supported the Anglo-Irish Treaty and in 1922 he composed a draft constitution for the Irish Free State with Darrell Figgis. O'Rahilly lead Irish delegations to the International Labour Organization conferences in 1924, 1925 and 1932, and took on conciliatory role in trade union and employers disputes in Munster. Standing as a candidate in Cork Borough for Cumann na nGaedheal, he was elected to the 4th Dáil at the 1923 general election. He resigned in 1924, causing a by-election which was won by the Cumann na nGaedheal candidate Michael Egan. A deeply religious Catholic from early life, O'Rahilly was a member of the Society of Jesus but left before ordination and was dispensed from his vows. He maintained his (sometimes controversial) religious views throughout his life, and became a priest, and then Monsignor, in later years following the death of his wife. He wrote a biography of Fr. Willie Doyle SJ - which was subsequently translated into other languages. In 1954, Pope Pius XII conferred on him the Pontifical Order of Saint Gregory the Great, the highest distinction awarded by the Pope to Catholic laymen. He was also an advisor on university education to the Archbishop of Dublin John Charles McQuaid and sat on an informal committee from 1950. The committee included O'Rahilly, and the other presidents of the National University of Ireland; Michael Tierney of UCD, Monsignor Pádraig de Brún, Cardinal D'Alton, and Bishops Cornelius Lucey of Cork and Michael Browne of Galway. O'Rahilly wrote a major survey of electromagnetic theory, Electromagnetics. He opposed Maxwell's dominant (British) theory of the electromagnetic field and followed the French Catholic physicist, historian of science, and philosopher of science Pierre Duhem in rejecting Maxwell's field account. As a logical consequence of his rejection of Maxwell, O'Rahilly also rejected Einstein's theory. O'Rahilly embraced Ritz's ballistic theory of light and Ritz's electrodynamics. While Ritz's theory reduces to Coulomb's Law and Ampere's Law, since its derivation is phenomenological, it differs from the Lienard-Wiechert potential. O'Rahilly also wrote against applying the theory of evolution to human society. Because O'Rahilly thought Cork lacked a social science curriculum he volunteered to teach courses in economics and sociology. When told that they could not spare him from the physics courses, he volunteered to teach an economics course and sociology course along with his physics courses.(Wikipedia)

        THE GRAPES OF WRATH. (OF MICE AND MEN)

      NY: Random House, 1941. First Modern Library Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. . NY: Random House, 1941. First Modern Library edition. Worn dustjacket (supplied), cloth stained and soiled (mostly at spine and not affecting internals), still solidly bound. Inscribed by Steinbeck to Moss Hart on the half title: For Moss Hart this book is touchingly inscribed - with pleasure and gratitude for Lennie knows what. John Steinbeck. Lennie is the key word that links Steinbeck to Hart, as Lennie Small is the tragic character in Of Mice and Men, and it is Moss Hart's principal collaborator, George S. Kaufman, who adapted the novella with Steinbeck for the stage in 1937. The inscription, unfortunately undated, can be no earlier than 1941 (when this edition was published) so it was not executed at the same time Steinbeck and Kaufman worked together. The back story for the inscription is provided by journalist and radio producer Don Swaim, resident of Bucks County and chairman of the Writer's Workshop there, on his excellent website. Bucks County was a favorite area for "country homes" for Manhattan writers, artists and "theater people" in the 1930s-1950s. Moss Hart and his wife Kitty Carlisle owned Fairview Farm in Holicong and Kaufman and his wife Beatrice were not far away at their estate, Cherchez La Farm. Steinbeck had written most of the short novel Of Mice in Men in dialogue form and he thought it would be easy to adapt to the stage. Kaufman had secured the stage rights. Steinbeck had written an adaptation but Kaufman saw that it needed immediate work, as the play was to be staged that fall. He invited Steinbeck to join him at his farm where in the later part of August 1937 they rewrote together Of Mice and Men. The degree to which Kaufman re-shaped the play is an open question. A comparative analysis by Jackson J. Benson in The Short Novels of John Steinbeck: Critical Essays With a Checklist to Steinbeck Criticism suggests that, even though the dialogue is about 80% directly from the novella, the narrative drama of the stage version was partly achieved by expanding the dialogue of Curley's wife, mistakenly killed by Lennie, and making her more sympathetic. The play opened in November to critical acclaim, edging Our Town for the Drama Critics Award, and spawned a successful movie version two year later. Steinbeck tired of the New York scene and returned to California to write The Grapes of Wrath. He never commented or wrote publicly about his experience with Kaufman, although in his later years well after Kaufman's death, he consistently credited Kaufman with the play's success. Still, Steinbeck's experience with Kaufman in August 1937 could not have been easy. He had written Of Mice and Men almost as a 'play-novella" and likely anticipated an easy transfer from page to stage. Thus, the inscription raises many questions for Steinbeck biographers and scholars. Had Steinbeck, commiserated with Hart, as the inscription suggests, who was just down the road from Kaufman about Hart's partner's reworking of his work? ("Damnit, Moss, what is George doing with my story?") Does Steinbeck refer to Lennie because he wanted to "protect" his tragic figure from Curly's wife becoming more sympathetic in Kaufman's hands? Is the reference to Lennie an allusion to how no one, perhaps even Steinbeck himself, could understand what was going through the mind of a person like Lennie? The inscription is also distinctive in that it is not common for Steinbeck to make explicit references to characters in his books in his inscriptions. No matter how dear the character Lennie may have been to Steinbeck and whatever Steinbeck meant in the inscription, this discovery surely is a vital artifact of Steinbeck's career and of American stage and film history both. (The provenance of the book is clear. By the late 50s, Kitty Carlisle had grown tired of the maintenance of the Bucks County farm and wanted to spend more time in New York and, in an eagerness to return to her and Moss' Manhattan apartment on a per.

        Home Guard Manual of Camouflage

      First edition, first printing; original boards and illustrated dust jacket. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free end paper, "A Brunius ce n'est pas ce qu'on voulais cette cachoterie militaire mais je souhaite a vous et Mary des annees plus lumineuses que 1941 Roland Penrose." Loosely inserted is a postcard from Penrose to Brunius, inviting him to a surrealist meeting and dinner at the Barcelona Restaurant, Beak Street, W1A, dated 9th May 1940. As a Quaker, Penrose had been a pacifist, but after the outbreak of the War he volunteered as an air raid warden and then taught military camouflage at the Home Guard training centre at Osterley Park. This led to Penrose's commission as a captain in the Royal Engineers. He worked as Senior Lecturer at the Eastern Command Camouflage School in Norwich, and at the Camouflage Development and Training Centre at Farnham Castle. During his lectures, he used to startle his audiences by inserting a colour photograph of his partner Lee Miller, lying on a lawn naked but for a camouflage net; when challenged, he argued "if camouflage can hide Lee's charms, it can hide anything". His lectures were respected by both trainees and colleagues and lead to the publication of this work, which provided accurate guidance on the use of texture, not only colour, especially for protection from aerial photography. Jacques Brunius, was a French actor, director and writer. Assistant director to Luis Buñuel on L'Âge d'or, he appeared in more than 30 movies. Member of the surrealist group in France and then in England, with his friend Roland Penrose. He was a staunch defender of surrealism. This fragile book was printed to wartime standards in small numbers and is now scarce. Fine in a very good dust jacket, which is a little spotted and has a chip to the spine, not affecting the lettering. Small attractive book plate of John Lyle, the writer on and collector of Surrealism.

        "Comenius, the English Revolution, and Our Present Plight". Typed Manuscript Signed. London, 1941.

      1941. 4to. 7 pp. on 7 ff. In honor of his Czech heritage, Kokoschka writes on the contributions of John Amos Comenius (Komenský in Czech, 1592-1670), a religious refugee, pioneer in education, and one of the earliest champions of universal education. Comenius believed in the role of science in society and promoted his belief that the enlightenment of mankind was ahead. Kokoschka's essay compares the life and work of Comenius, specifically when he visited England in 1641, to the present time of post-war reconstruction and how universal education must still be the most important goal of society. His essay begins, "The visit of [...] Comenius [...] evokes our particular interest to-day because official voices are now encouraging the aim of re-making the foundations of the social order, just as they were on the eve of the English Civil War when the famous exile paid his visit to England [...]". - Kokoschka presents information on England in the 17th century, saying "there was [...] no fear of foreign ideas [...] Mystical strains [...] awoke again in the social unrest [...] existing order [...] had come into opposition [...] with this Christian principle of the human dignity of the individual". He comments on Comenius' thought, "Salvation is at hand - through education", and presents his own views on how education suffered after World War I. Kokoschka felt that as Comenius believed in fighting illiteracy, that fight needed to be continued now. - "Mass education seems sometimes to have been a failure. But Comenius' plan has not yet been realized. The resolve of the democratic peoples that this crusade against Fascism shall not again fade out [...] can perhaps best be furthered by focusing attention on the problem of how to free the individual by removing the primary cause of his bondage, that is, education for national ends [...] With the break-up of the middle-ages, nationalism rose to a position of dominance over all human affairs. Nationalism has made the tone of popular thought sometimes inhuman [...] superhuman, but never [...] normal and human. We need a covenant on the guiding principles of of [sic] rational education [...]". - His essay ends with an appeal. "Democracy underrates the growing complacency and despair of the backward masses [...] The essential principle of his [Comenius] educational plan translated into modern language demands from world Democracy an international scientific control of mass-education by a board of internationally minded educational experts and scientists [...] A World Education Board [...] would be the greatest instrument ever forged in the interest of world democracy, and thus indeed a realisation of Komensky's [Comenius] highest aims". - Kokoschka then signs in full with place and date. Rust stain and small tear at top of first page. Published in 1942 in "The Teacher of Nations: Addresses and Essays in Commemoration of the Visit to England of the Great Czech educationalist Jan Amos Komensky, Comenius". Edited by Joseph Needham (Cambridge University Press).

        Correspondence archive. Various places, 1941-1989.

      1941. A quantity of some 155 letters and postcards, including several addenda (postcards, clippings, photographs, etc.). To Oskar Haaf, head of the entertainment department at the German radio station Südwestfunk Baden-Baden, and to his wife Ria. A copious collection of about 93 autograph or typed letters, 15 folded lettercards, and 47 postcards and photographs, with several addenda. - Trenker's friendship with the broadcaster Haaf, which dated from the prewar years, intensified in the 1960s when the busy mountaineer and film maker began to concentrate on lectures, documentaries, and wide and varied appearances on radio and television. The numerous letters and postcards offer a lively account of their collaboration (including a long Trenker feature which entails a discussion about the classical music to be used), but also provide a narrative of the many years in which Trenker, ever bustling with activity, produced scripts, songs, radio shows, and much more. Among the subjects of the correspondence are Karajan and Kokoschka (whom he criticises), the memoirs of Tilla Durieux (which he is reading), Ennio Morricone (whom music for "Once Upon a Time in the West" he praises), and his forged Eva Braun diaries (which he disowns). The collection expands the well-known image of Trenker as a popular mountaineer, showing him as an intelligent, active, and well-read man fully abreast with current developments even in his old age. - Occasional edge damage; some letters with punched holes.

        Ms. Brief mit Zeichnung und eigen. Brief, beide mit U. [Stuttgart], 19. XI. 1941 und 23. VI. 1944.

      1941. Zusammen 4 SS. An Dieter Keller, den Stuttgarter "Kosmos"-Verleger (1909-1985), der zu einer Reihe von Künstlern der Moderne, darunter auch Baumeister, enge Freundschaft pflegte. - 1941 (Typoskript): An seinen Freund an der Ostfront. Er berichtet von einem Missverständnis hinsichtlich der Kosmos-Bücher "o schmach, o wehmut, was habe ich aus purer dummheit, aus einfalt, getan, gemacht, gelüftet den schleier der preiswerten bücher [...]". Das gelbe Briefpapier verwendet er wieder, "dass sie einen tropfen laune bekommen mögen". - Berichtet von seinem Besuch bei den Axenbrüdern und seiner "eiszeitmalereitechnikforschung ›forschung‹ ist dabei etwas überheblich". Baumeister hatte sich in diesen Jahren mit prähistorischer und primitiver Kunst befasst. - Erwähnt auch einen Besuch der "kerko", wohl Ida Kerkovius, die wieder ein paar Schüler habe. - Einige eigenhändige Korrekturen und Zusätze, am Ende das "Selbstporträt an der Schreibmaschine sitzend" (Tusche, ca. 6:13 cm). - Dieter Keller wurde kurz vor der Schlacht von Stalingrad nach Italien versetzt. - 1944 (eigenhändig): "Die mod. Kunst lehrt Freiheit, deshalb animiert sie auch in diesem Sinn am einzelnen Stück weiter zu machen. Der Nordpol ist nicht allein oben, sonder überall ist oben u.s.w. Alle Möglichkeiten liegen oen. [...] Der Stehkragen war früher ein Ausdrucksmittel für männliche Tugend, irrationaler Art, da er unpraktisch u. quälte und gehörte damit in die primitive Vorstufe zur Tätowierung, die zwar Schmuckbedürfnis aber damit noch nicht genug erklärt ist. Bei ›schönen‹ Dingen frage man nicht nach dem Zweck u.s.w. sondern nach dem Wert der Anregung zum Irrationalen. O ich alter Schulmeister! Alles Beste für Rückzüge und Vorzüge." - Dazu: Porträtfotografie Willi Baumeister. 1954/1959. Mit Anschreiben von Baumeisters Witwe Margaret Baumeister.

        Eigenh. Brief mit Initialen. O. O., 24. VII. 1941.

      1941. 1 S. Gr.-4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "J'ai eu beaucoup de travail et en supplément peu agréable une fermeture dans les oreilles qui m'a fait passer de mauvais moments. Cela commence à s'arranger. Nous partons la semaine prochaine chez Ch. Munch qui nous a très gentiment invité dans sa maison [...] pres de Montfort. Cela fera un petit changement d'air [...] Vous avez vu que j'ai eu la faiblesse d'accepter le poste de critique a Comedia et cela a absorbé toutes mes possibilités d'ecrivain [...]". - Erwähnt auch den unerwarteten Tod des Komponisten Philippe Gaubert, der am 8. Juli des Jahres in Paris verstorben war: "Je l'ai vue deux jours avant à la répétition de son ballet, cela m'a fait de la peine car c'était un bon ami et il sera difficile à remplacer à l'Opéra [...]".

        "Hoplopoiia, Iliada Sigma (S. 368-618)". Autograph manuscript signed ("N. Kazantzaki"). No place, c. 1941-1947.

      1941. 10 ff. of ms., with an additional f. of notes. 11 ff. altogether, written in ink on one side only, narrow folio format (c. 35 x 17 cm). Complete manuscript of the famous "Hoplopoiia" section of Kazantzakis's Iliad translation: a pivotal part of the 18th book (rhapsody sigma) of Homer's epic. Kazantzakis and the scholar J. T. Kakridis collaborated on this metrical translation from classical Greek into the modern demotic language over a 14-year period. When it was privately printed in 1955, the controversial effort was hailed as "'living' poetry, through which the modern Greeks will be able to grasp much of the vigour, the passion, and the values of the heroic world of the Iliad" (C. A. Trypanis, The Classical Review 8 [1958], p. 280). The "Hoplopoiia", or the "Making of Armor for Achilles", is one of the most famous parts of Homer's poem: After the death of Patroclus has convinced Achilles to re-enter battle and avenge his friend, his mother Thetis seeks out the smithing god Hephaistus, who fashions a new set of armour for him, among which is a magnificently wrought shield. The detailed description (ekphrasis) of this shield, which takes up most of the present ms., is regarded as one of the paramount passages in Western literature: starting from the center and moving outward, the shield shows first the heavenly bodies (Earth, sky and sea, the sun, the moon and the constellations), then a city at peace (a wedding; a lawsuit; council) and at war (opposing armies; the gods; an ambush); country life (ploughing and reaping; vintage; a herd of cattle attacked by lions; a sheep farm); dancing youths and maidens; and finally, the all-enclosing ocean stream. In essence, the shield offers a physical encapsulation of the entire world: the various layers of this microcosm present a series of contrasts, antitheses that show the basic forms of a civilized, essentially orderly life. Leading up to Achilles's return to battle and one of the bloodiest parts of the Iliad, the Shield Ekphrasis also provides a moment of calm before the storm. - Traces of horizontal folds. Numerous revisions, corrections, and insertions in ink and pencil; caption "Iliada 18 (S. 368-618)" broadly underlined in red crayon. In the final page of notes (written on the reverse of a leaf on which the beginning of the translation has been struck out), Kazantzakis states that this version is not to be considered final and will require revisions as to orthography and accentuation. While the present ms. was probably composed and revised over a period of several years (the variations in pen type and ductus pointing to at least three main stages), the statement that work had been ongoing for three years suggests a time frame around the year 1944. Includes Certificate of Authenticity, issued by Spanos Rare Books, Athens.

        FIRE AND ICE

      New York Duell, Sloan and Pearce 1941 - First edition, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED by Wallace Stegner. 8vo, publisher’s original blue boards, lettered in white on the spine, in the original dustjacket. 214 pp. A near fine copy with only a hint of wear to the spine edges and with a jacket that is complete with inoffensive evidence of shelf wear to its edges. AN EXCELLENT COPY OF THIS RARE AND INSCRIBED STEGNER TITLE. The central figure in the novel is a fierce rebel, who is working his way through college, and who is mor than ready to take arms against the injustice of the world he knows. He becomes desperately attracted to a girl of wealth and beauty who represents everything that he has forced himself to reject and disdain. The inscription is for Virginia, a close friend of Stegner and his "favorite reader". He signs very familiarly as "Wally". Stegner was a professor at Harvard when he wrote this book. Virginia was a friend at Harvard during the same time as Stegner's stint at the university. His REMEMBERING LAUGHTER was issued in 1937 to critical acclaim. It won the Little, Brown contest and was followed by ON A DARKLING PLAIN. It is said of FIRE AND ICE the the pace of Stegner's narrative is more beautifully calculated than ever before and his feeling for word and phrase more acute. Inscribed copies of this early work are very scarce indeed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
